LAS VEGAS (AP) — Music legend Stevie Wonder plans to headline in Sin City on New Year's Eve, playing to a ballroom crowd at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and to thousands of revelers on the Las Vegas Strip by video.

Casino officials tell The Associated Press the 25-time Grammy winner known for top hits including "Superstition" and "You are the Sunshine of My Life" will be its top performer one year after an exclusive grand opening bash that featured Jay-Z and Kanye West. Tickets start at $250 and include an open bar.

The show caps a year of shows at the Cosmopolitan that featured acts including Adele, the Flaming Lips and Deadmau5.

It will stream to partiers on the Las Vegas Strip, which will shut down to vehicle traffic and fill up with tourists.
